Florence is about to lose a couple of special people. They have been inhabitants of the Shoals area for about 23 years and will soon be moving to Edmond OK to be closer to his parents.
Several years ago I blogged about my favorite little corner in Florence, it being the corner of Pine St and Chisholm Rd. I don’t know why I was attracted to the place but for some strange reason I just thought the little buildings there were so neat. Apparently so did Mitch and Kathi Wade.
After putting in Montagues and Frostbite on that corner I had to sample the food at Montagues. To this day I have yet to have a better Philly Cheesesteak. I met the owner there one day and the rest has been history, so to speak.
Getting to know them has been a true joy. We share many of the same ideals and beliefs and thoughts and they have been a true blessing to me. Supporters of the Florence area and UNA in particular, the Wades will be missed but they do promise to be back to support the Lions. They have become customers of mine and friends as well. While I completely understand the why’s of the move ( I would expect nothing less),… it doesn’t make it any easier to see them go. Truly two people that were right for each other and for everyone they come in contact with. I cannot compliment them enough. Love you guys and will miss you and wish you well on your next chapter!! War Damn Eagle!!
